COLUMBIA, SC (July 11, 2017) – Best friends from Anderson are splitting a $125,000 lottery prize.

The guys met at work 15 years ago and despite changing jobs have remained close. They were hanging out last week, scratching a few lottery tickets outside the Anderson Quick Stop on Pearman Dairy Rd. when good fortune hit.

“We just won $125,000!” screamed the fellow that scratched the winning Red Hot Cash ticket.

The other friend just laughed.

One of the winners is taking his family out to eat at the Olive Garden and the other is taking his family on a nice vacation.

“This is going to make life easier,” both friends agreed.

Now that the prize is paid, Anderson Quick Stop in Anderson receives a $1,250 commission.

Four top prizes of $125,000 remain in the $5 Red Hot Cash game, at odds of 1 in 480,000.
